Turning the Tables: Supporting the Chefs Who Support Equality



HRC would like to express its profound gratitude to and appreciation of the Washington, D.C., area’s restaurant community, which, since 2012, has donated their time, talent and product to our annual Chefs for Equality fundraiser in support of LGBTQ equality. Time and again, these restaurateurs, bar owners, caterers, chefs, cooks, bakers, mixologists, purveyors of fine food and drink products and their staffs — more than 200 of them at Chefs for Equality 2019 at the Washington National Cathedral — have demonstrated boundless generosity. Now it’s time for the LGBTQ community and our allies to help them.

COVID-19 has affected all of us, but the restaurant industry, particularly independent operators, has been financially devastated. How can we help? By simply clicking on the websites of Chefs for Equality participants and support them with your patronage and generosity, be it by ordering takeout, delivery or groceries and/or purchasing products or retail.
